Exceptional service, great food, great location

DGH Chocolatier, United Kingdom - June 2018

Praia Sundy is a five-star hotel with opulent tented villas hidden in amongst the forest trees. The level of finish in the villas is absolutely top quality. We were right next to the beach immersed in the sounds of the forest and the sea. The restaurant is a marvel to look at made from bamboo Angelo and his team and his team make the most amazing food.

Great hotel on a stunning island

A and F, - December 2018

The hotel has a stunning position hidden amongst the tropical forest and landscape on a lovely empty beach. The staff are very friendly and make a huge effort to make one feel comfortable. Great design overall with super comfortable rooms. The food was very good and mainly sourced from their own organic farm. Easily rivals an Aman hotel and set on a beautiful island. Well worth a visit.
